The second season of the championship saw the team partner with French automotive company, DS Performance, and become DS Virgin Racing.
Racing in nine cities, with a double-header finale in London, Formula E introduced eight manufacturers to the sport – allowing powertrains to be developed. For this season French racer, and ex-Formula One driver, Jean-Eric Vergne (JEV) joined Sam Bird to form the season two driver pairing. The season was successful for the duo, scoring four pole position between them and four podiums.
Bird scored the team’s only race win of the season in Buenos Aires, Argentina, holding on to the top stop after a hard-fought battle with Swiss driver Sebastien Buemi. With just three retirements between the pair in season two, both were able to contribute a considerable points haul to the season and the team ended in third in the championship.
